Amador Flower Farm event features a million blooms

Where can you see a million flowers in bloom in one weekend? At Daylily Days in Amador County.

On Saturday and Sunday, Amador Flower Farm hosts its annual salute to its top crop -- daylilies.

Located in the heart of Shenandoah Valley wine country, the 14-acre farm and nursery grows these easy-care perennials in thousands of varieties and just about every color and combination. June is the farm's height of bloom.
Sargeant Major is one of more than 1,200 varieties available.

Take a free tram tour to enjoy the long rows of lilies in full flower. Surrounded by vineyards, the farm also features huge centuries-old oaks, a full-service nursery and unique demonstration gardens.

During Daylily Days, master gardeners will lead demonstrations each hour. Learn about bonsai, air plants and other specialties. Vendors will offer garden art and more gift ideas.

Members of the Amador County 4-H Club will offer a barbecue lunch for $6 with your choice of hamburger or hot dog. Lunch includes chips and bottled water. Or bring your own picnic to enjoy under the big trees.

Shop for daylilies, too. The farm offers about 1,200 varieties in containers, ready to take home.

Daylily Days will be held from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, June 8 and 9. Admission and parking are free.




Yuma daylily is one of many eye-catching varieties.

Dig In: Garden Checklist

For week of Feb. 18:

It's wet to start the week. When you do get outside, between or after storms, concentrate on damage control:

* Keep storm drains and gutters clear of debris.

* Clean up tree debris knocked down by wind and rain.

* Where did the water flow in your garden? Make notes where revisions are necessary.

* Are any trees leaning? See disturbances in the ground or lawn around their base? Time to call an arborist before the tree topples.

* Dump excess water out of pots.

* Indoors, start peppers, tomatoes and eggplant from seed.

* Lettuce and other greens also can be started indoors from seed.

* Got bare-root plants? Put their roots in a bucket of water until outdoor soil dries out. Or pot them up in 1- or 5-gallon containers. In April, transplant the plant, rootball and all, into the garden.

* Browse garden websites and catalogs. It’s not too late to order for spring and summer.

* Show your indoor plants some love. Dust leaves and mist to refresh.
